Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Symmetry is the most common and important principle that guides the formation of realistic theories in science. The notion of symmetry is fundamental not only in cosmological theories, but also in quantum theory, thermodynamics, statistical physics, etc.

Most of the equations for dynamical systems in physics, such as the field equations of any gravity theory, are a system of non-linear ordinary/partial differential equations and are generally difficult to solve. In order to solve these complicated systems of ordinary/partial differential equations, Noether and space–time symmetries are some of the tools that can be used to find their exact solutions. Symmetries of Lagrangians are of great interest on account of Noether’s theorem, which has been widely used in cosmology and gravity theories. Space–time symmetries, such as isometries and collineations, can reduce the number of unknown functions in space–time metric components. The main aim of this Special Issue is to invite researchers working in theoretical and mathematical physics to submit their work, in which Noether and the space–time symmetry approach are used to find exact solutions for the corresponding equations that represent certain dynamical systems.

In this Special Issue, original research articles, reviews, communications and concept papers are welcome. We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Symmetry is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
